An arty welcome to Leeds
Coming into Leeds by rail then you are sure to see the new Rail Station Welcome, created by leading contemporary artists from the area.
The new commission funded is by Leeds Business Improvement District, and commissioned via Leeds City Council’s Unfold project with support from Network Rail.Windows of Leeds aims to give local artists a huge window to shine a light on the city’s hugely talented visual art community.
The project led by Leeds design studio Something More is a 2-metre-high typographic sculpture, one that is iconic and offers a welcoming fascade to Leeds Rail Station. The concept is simple, to showcase the diverse nature of the city’s creative talent.
The first artists being showcased are Something More, Kristyna Baczynski, Alphabet, Hungry Sandwich Club & Idio Pasture. The work they have developed is incredible and varies from a friendly big wave, to the inside of a synth (representing the music scene) to a piece which celebrates the brewing heritage of Leeds, past and present.
